Letting her brush aside the allegations of unwanted touching against her husband and questions of “where is Hunter,” CBS correspondent Rita Braver conducted a gooey puff piece for CBS Sunday Morning featuring Dr. Jill Biden (PhD). Between excited fawning over the idea of continuing to teach and playing pranks around the White House, it was obvious that Braver desperately wanted Biden to be her “unconventional” first lady.
Braver, whose husband (Robert Barnett) would probably be working with Joe Biden on his debate prep, began her doting feature with a clip of Biden blocking a heckler from getting to her husband and proclaiming “Jill Biden has always stood up for her family.”
In that vein, Braver helped Jill protect the media’s presidential candidate by weakly bring up the allegations of inappropriate and unwanted touching against Joe. “Allegations started to come out that some women thought that your husband had been too familiar with them,” Braver gingerly put it. She let Biden brush it aside as “a space issue. They felt that they wanted more space.” Biden also insisted that Joe had “learned from it” and “keeps his distance.”
After noting that Biden had punched a “bully” like President Trump in the face when she was a little girl, Braver gushed about how her subject “got a doctorate in education and has worked as a community college teacher for years, even as second lady.”
